Performance Art: Nov-Dec 2004

Given that India boasts a rich and fertile tradition of dance and theatre, it is interesting that the move towards performance in the contemporary visual arts has not been a welcomed or fluid transition. The 2004 International Residency at KHOJ explored an art form that continues to raise eyebrows and throw up questions about the nature of contemporary visual art practice. The artists in residence from Jakarta, Belo Hori Zonte, Brazil, Amsterdam and Mumbai came from diverse backgrounds, ranging from theatre to studio-based performance. It was an intense period of working together and exploring notions of the body, materials, space and time.
